    Promotion Tactics?

    Hi All,

    I will shortly be starting the promotion of a new Sportsbook & Casino. I was wondering if you guys could give me some pointers as to where to start first...

    I was thinking something along the lines of:

    1. Search Engines ( Please list 10 good ones that I should start with )

    2. Directories ( Are there any that don't require a link back anymore?? )

    If anyone can think of anything else that would be a good idea for Internet promotion, please feel free to add .

    AgentX

    you might

    Just a tought but you might contact a advertising agency that handles this kind of business and ask them to write you up a proposal on how they would promote your business, then just follow what they would do to promote it.

    Here is where you should start...

    Google, Inktomi, Fast, Looksmart, Yahoo, Dmoz, Alta Vista Goto. Pay for their indexing/listing services if you want the best results. I wouldn't bother submitting to anywhere else.

    Those will get you in all major search engines available. The trick will be to pulling off a good ranking. There are thousands of sites competing for your keywords.. You will have to work hard to bump someone out of the top ten. This wil also make you a target and many other sites will be working to bump you out.

    You have to understand that some search engines like google for example rank your site by its popularity. Submitting your site to other directories will improve your site popularity.

    Check out siteowner.com. They have a list of directories that you should consider. That should keep you busy for a while.

    Goto.com is a must. Their search results appear on major search engine like AV, MSN, and much more.

    Write a press release. If you do this right, it will make your site a success, but it requires a lot of work.

    Submit your site to awards sites. You will find a list of them on siteowner.com.

    Start writing partnership proposals to sites that can benefit and improve your business.

    Also, you are welcome to submit to my directory if your site meets our guidelines.

    This should keep you busy for a while and good luck.
